Evotech Frame Sliders

Install and Review
This install and review is bitter sweet. The sweet part is the
product. The bitter part was that today I got in a situation where I had two
lay down my new 2008 Suzuki B-King. We will all do this a few times in a
lifetime of riding. Some more so then others. Some times it's rider error or
a chain of small events that add up to a nasty situation that is inevitable.
In my case it was a combination of both. Live and learn! To add insult to
injury, when I arrived home my frame sliders had arrived from Evotech based
out of the UK. Really?
I could have gotten pissed and had a bad night but I thought what a good
chance to inform others of the benefits of installing frame sliders. After
all I had the sliders in my hand and I had a good example of a new bike with
road rash. So why not? Off to the garage with camera and parts in hand I
went. It took three times as much time to set up my camera gear then it did
to install the Evotech frame sliders. $75 US and 15 minutes and its all
over. The install was very simple. I used an Allen socket driver to remove
the factory motor mount bolts. I then assembled the two piece bobbin and
shaft that make up the frame slider and bolted them into place. it just
doesn't get any better. The products are made of Delrin and designed to be
very effective at what they do (slide). The bolts, I'm told are shatter
resistant. I put frame sliders at the top of the list right under safety
gear. Get yourself safe first, then make your bike safe. This $75 investment
would have saved me about $600 in parts had I had them on the bike. No
worries, the bike will be fine after some bolt on cosmetic stuff. nothing
bent. The Evotech frame sliders appear to be a top notch product and well built.
I do wish the slider part went closer to the frame. (See my EOS frame slider
